We sometimes say, “This is nothing but short of a miracle.”…but what is miracle? Miracles are nothing but the natural order/sequence of things/events. We say nature is unpredictable, beyond our comprehension, what is happening to us is unpredictable, the future is unpredictable…pleasant or unpleasant…and so on.

But nothing is categorized as a miracle only to certain group of people, who:

  1. Takes everything in equanimity, regardless of circumstances, time or place.
  2. Strongly believes everything is a creation of the Supreme, soothe ever and offend never kind of people.
  3. Strongly believe in living in harmony with the nature and not to exploit her to satisfy the greed.
  4. Leads a simple life with minimum needs and bare expectations on anyone/anything.

The conditioned souls hover in dreams heavenly illusory pleasures, but actually they do not relish any tangible happiness in such places. For this reason the enlightened person should endeavor only for the minimum necessities of life while in the world of names. He should be intelligently fixed and never endeavor for unwanted things, being competent to perceive practically that all such endeavors are merely hard labor for nothing.” – Srimad Bhagavatham

5. Understands the purpose of life and living, that this place of residence, earth is just a temporary sojourn and utilize the purpose of this human body to go beyond the four basic instincts of a living being viz., eat, sleep, reproduce and defend

This is beautifully summarized in Srimad Bhagavatham:

A desire to maintain body, wife and children is also observed in animal society. The animals have full intelligence to manage such affairs. If a human being is simply advanced in this respect, what is the difference between him and an animal? One should be very careful to understand that this human life is attained after many, many births in the evolutionary process. A learned man who gives up the bodily conception of life, both gross and subtle, will, by the enlightenment of spiritual knowledge, become a prominent individual spirit soul, as the Supreme Lord is also.” – Srimad Bhagavatham 4.29.1a-2a.

"Knowledge is the ultimate perfection of self-realization.". (Srimad Bhagavatham 3.26.2) Trying to seek that knowledge through life experiences that leads to compassion, dispassion and ultimately satisfaction.
